About

I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Burntwood, Staffordshire. I find joy in capturing all the wonderful, genuine emotions of wedding days. My natural, colourful style represents the story and emotions of the day, highlighting all the unforgettable moments. My friendly and relaxed personality helps me to connect with couples and bring out natural moments rather than super posey portraits! I believe the most important thing when photographing weddings is to portray a couple's love story in the most authentic way possible.

Services Offered

I offer three full-day photography packages, which can be customised to suit your individual needs. Each package includes coverage from bridal prep to the first dance, a USB stick containing all high-resolution photos, and a password-protected online gallery. Optional extras include a second photographer, pre-wedding photoshoots and fine art albums. I also offer half-day packages for weddings during the week and during off-peak seasons, so please get in touch to see if this would be suitable for your big day.

Wonderful, relaxed photos!

We can't recommend Charlotte enough for wedding photos!

Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of a camera and so we were a bit apprehensive about portraits but Charlotte made us feel more comfortable in front of a camera lens than we ever thought possible. Charlotte listened to everything we wanted and the photos were incredible, capturing every part of our day.

Amazing photos which perfectly captured our day!

We booked Charlotte after our wedding was rearranged due to covid and I am so pleased because everything from her communication, to the package, to the photos themselves way surpassed my expectations and previous photographer. I adore Charlotte’s style of photography and she has captured absolutely every moment of our day but during the wedding she blended in perfectly, no one felt like they were being photographed so the photos are so natural and we can really see people enjoying the day as it actually happened. She was also incredible at advising us on the bride and groom photos, I was worried I would be terribly awkward during those but she was brilliant. I would 100% recommend Charlotte and having an extra shooter was brilliant too.

A day worth waiting for…

From first contact right through to our wedding day Charlotte was first class. We had to change our date numerous times due to Covid and she was fully flexible and prompt with her response and availability. On the day she blended in seamlessly with our guests and captured some fantastic pictures. We were especially pleased with our smoke bomb pictures. If you are looking for a photographer to capture your big day you will find it difficult to find someone better than Charlotte

The most beautiful photos...

We cannot thank Charlotte enough for the amazing photos that we have. They so beautifully capture the day and now we have the most amazing photos to look back on.
Charlotte and the 2nd photographer Emily were so lovely and made us both feel relaxed- we were both quite nervous about having our photos taken! They also had to brave the freezing cold in December but it didn't let it stop them getting all of the photos that we wanted!
The photos came back quicker than we thought they were going to and were beautifully edited. It is great having our own special gallery that we can share with family and friends. I cannot recommend Charlotte enough for your special day!

Candid Photos to commemorate a beautiful day

We were really happy with our experience with Charlotte as our photographer. We had an initial meeting with Charlotte on zoom and her approach was very much in line with what we wanted. Candid photos, not too posey!

We also met up with Charlotte at the venue prior to the wedding to discuss in person any particular shots we wanted and where everything was happening.

She made us feel really at ease during family photos and our twilight photos and we were so happy with the results. We barely noticed Charlotte throughout the day too.

We highly recommend Charlotte :)

Seamless, vibrant photography!

Choosing a photographer for our wedding was one of the most important decisions supplier wise for us. After all, the photos are how you relive the day for years to come.

From the first consultation with Charlotte, we knew she was the best choice for us. She was very bubbly, friendly and you could tell she was very passionate about what she does!

Her communication was also brilliant, responding to my emails and also a FaceTime meeting discussing the day and helping with any questions we had.

On the day itself, Charlotte and James (second shooter) arrived in perfect time in the morning. They blended in amazingly with everyone throughout the day, suggesting ideas for the perfect shot. We are not the most comfortable in front of the camera, however our photos would say otherwise! Charlotte made us feel really comfortable throughout the whole day. Our family also commented on how lovely her and James were.

3 days after the wedding, Charlotte sent us a few sample shots. The photos are such good quality, vibrant and captures our day perfectly!

I could not recommend Charlotte enough! If you haven’t already found a photographer, message her!

Thank you again Charlotte, Jade & Tom Beardmore x

Fun, relaxed, perfect!

We cannot speak highly enough of Charlotte! She was so relaxed, friendly and personable with us and all of our guests. She wasn't too intrusive but made sure she grabbed us all for the right pictures at the right times. We were feeling a bit awkward about posing for pictures too but she immediately put us at ease and was so much fun. We got our sneak peek pictures within 48 hours and they are amazing, genuinely could not be happier!

Wonderful wedding photographer!

Charlotte was amazing, she was so accommodating and understanding when we needed to push our wedding date back due to covid. From the initial meeting, she was professional and enthusiastic, which really put us at our ease. She captured our day so beautifully and we are so grateful for the wonderful photos!! 100% recommend Charlotte if you’re looking for a 5* photographer.

Awesome Wedding Photographer

I can't speak highly enough of Charlotte as our wedding photographer. From start to finish she put us both at ease and answered all of our questions even the most ridiculous ones and we felt so reassured that she had planned everything with such detail. She is so easy to get along with and we felt so comfortable with her given neither of us are 'photo people' which is a credit to her. So many of the close wedding party commented on how great she was too, always a good sign! The photo's she produced were also amazing, some great natural photo's of our guests looking relaxed and enjoying themselves and some stunning ones that captured the amazing venue we had chosen. I can't recommend Charlotte enough, she is amazing at what she does.

Beautiful photos and Charlotte is a wonderful friendly face

Charlotte made us feel at ease all day, she wasn't intrusive and listened to what we wanted from our photos. She was also incredibly helpful on the day with helping us get ready in the morning and calmed my nerves when the weather looked ominous. Charlotte's photos are incredible, we are so happy with them and would recommend her whole-heartedly.
